What are the qualifications of your staff?
All of our staff instructors are former National Championship JROTC Cadets, National Champion Coaches, Nationals Judges, former service drill team members (i.e. United States Army Drill Team) and/or professional drillers. With our staff, reputation is everything!
It is easy to say that methods work in theory, our staff backs everything up with results. Our trainers can all ‘talk the talk, AND walk the walk’. Complete bios can be found here.
Have any of your staff members ever served in the military?
Yes, we are proud to say
that we provide jobs to veterans! Many of our staff
members are currently serving in on active duty or in the
reserves. Many of our staff
members are full time college students with some pursuing
military commissions upon graduation.
What service manuals do you use for drill?
Our staff is well versed in all of the current United States’ military drill manuals. They are:
Army Training Circular 3-21.5
Marine Corps Order P5050.20
Air Force Manual 36-2203
Additionally, we have worked out of dozen of department and base level honor guard manuals from around the United States.
On the international side, we are versed in the British Manual of Elementary Drill (All Arms). With our vast knowledge of drill as a whole, we can learn and teach from any other manuals that your unit might use.
there a minimum or maximum number of participants required for training?
No! There isn't. We have literally had training missions with as few as one, and as many as 500 present for our training sessions.
What is the cost of training?
Our open training sessions and seminars have their prices listed on the sign up page. Private drill team training camps average $50 per participant for a standard 3 day camp. For private camps, the travel and accommodations of our training staff is the responsibility of the camp's host.
Do you do training missions outside the continental United States?
Yes we do. Worldwide. We offer special discounts for these camps too. Please contact us for details.
Where can we get copies of any pictures that were taken?
We do not have an official photographer for most of our events. Any pictures that were taken by our staff, or that get sent into us will be posted on our official Facebook page.
Do you carry any sort of Liability Insurance?
Currently, Competitive Outcomes does NOT carry any type of liability insurance. Safety is the number one priority at all of our drill training sessions, and we are proud to say that after hundreds of camps, we have never experienced any injuries that a simple band-aid couldn’t fix. All participants (or their parents if under 18 years of age) must sign and complete both a medical release form and a hold harmless form.
Are the exhibition routines you design unique or are they used by other teams too?
All exhibition routines that we design are totally customized and unique to the team we create them WITH. We design your custom routine with your team based on both the team's style/personality and ability level in a piece by piece design. That means your new routines can be easily modified with harder moves and pieces that can be easily interchanged to create a different look and feel. Additionally, we create the routines in a highly adaptable form that can be used on drill areas of varying sizes.
Outcomes ship to APO addresses?
Yes, Competitive Outcomes ships to APO, FPO, and DPO addresses using USPS Priority Mail, which is offered to our customers. When entering one of these addresses be sure to select United States as your country to avoid having to pay our International shipping rates.
